Adults - Detox Your Mind through Meditation - Wednesday, 3/13 at 6:30 PM in the 1st Floor Meeting Room

 

Many people are seeking wellness and participate in detoxification regimens that cleanse the body by eliminating toxins. Detoxing has become mainstream. While we tend to our physical well-being and we often overlook the health of our mental or inner well-being. By detoxing our mind we can improve our thought patterns which in turn will calm the mind and bring about mental wellness and inner peace. Join Daya Sharma, a long time meditator, and learn how to implement a simple yet very powerful meditation technique that can be life changing.

The Friends of Freeman Library (Freeman Bookstore) support this event.
